I am 69 years and 3 months old. Birthdate 2/3/1947.With April 29th coming very quickly, can I do anything tomorrow to increase my benefit ( $1650 per month ) ( $1788 ) per month for 10% service connected disability ( heart ) through VA. Or should I just wait until I turn 70 ? Is there normally a rate increase at age 70 ? Will I receive the maximum ( which I think is $2639 ) at age 70 if I do nothing ?Should I go into the SS office and apply for this ?Are there any lump sum payments I can get and not jeopardize my current or future award?I live in Shreveport Louisiana 71118 and I served in the Air Force 4 years VSM.

I am the authorize representative mother Social Security

I am the authorize representative for my mother Social Security Benefits. I only monitor or help her with her funds, I do not use it nor does it come to my account but my mothers.My mother left her home and moved into assistance living apt, which is funded through HUD. My mother was receiving a reverse mortgage for her home and she out lived the loan, reporting the information to Soc. Sec. that she no longer receives and that she moved into Assistant living, I met up with a clerk at the Soc. Sec. Office that didn't understand how the reverse mortgage worked and how it didn't affect my mothers' benefits. Well after much haggling and questioning and frustration, I requested to speak with her supervisor. After speaking with the supervisor it was made known that I was right and the clerk was wrong. My mom benefits were reinstated but I later received a written letter from the clerk stating that the matter was not over, she still wanted that documentation. I really believed that the was a threat and I want to know if there is anything I can do or is there someone I can report this too?
